Event Opportunity: The Swimmers in-person screening and Q&A
**Please note this is an in-person event.**
Join WFTV for a special screening of new Netflix feature film The Swimmers, followed by a Q&A with Director and Writer Sally El Hosaini, Writer Jack Thorne, Cast Nathalie Issa, Manal Issa and Matthias Schweighöfer, and real life subjects Yusra Mardini and Sven Spannenkrebs.
From war-torn Syria to the 2016 Rio Olympics, two young sisters embark on a risky voyage, putting their hearts and their swimming skills to heroic use. An epic adventure drawn from the most pressing of global stories, The Swimmers tells the remarkable true tale of sisters Yusra and Sara Mardini, who fled their home in war-torn Damascus to seek a new life in Europe and earn the chance to compete in the Olympics. Directed by Sally El Hosaini (My Brother the Devil) and written by Jack Thorne, this is a moving story of two young women refugees, and their inspiring reach for a better life.
